I`ve got an 2.5tdi auto, had problems with the torque converter sticking, £900,+ vat to replace or total rebuild £1800 inc vat, went for the latter option as if you replace torque converter on it`s own then the gearbox it`self does go, you have to replace the torque convertor again, pricey option , but my velle did have 150,000 miles when I started experienceing problems, The box it`self is pretty strong, and very smooth, I would definately go for auto again, but depends how long you are going to keep the vehicle to get your money`s worth out of it..got 200.000 miles on it now, no problems

Is the Automatic gearbox reliable.
Some are & some aren't. The problem is if they fail they are expensive to repair. I have owned one for a few years [bought it because it was cheap] but never really liked driving it although my wife did. I disliked some of the idiosyncranisms & sold it for a manual.
